Baruch Spinoza on God - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 232
God/Spinoza/Höffe: The only substance that exists, God, is cause of itself (causa sui); the different basic forms of reality are nothing else but attributes of God. This indwelling (immanence) of all things in God and God in all things amounts to a pantheism (All-God doctrine: God is everything and in everything). It excludes a transcendental concept of God that transcends the world and, although Spinoza's system is based on a concept of God, it introduces the then almost fatal accusation of atheism(1).

1. Spinoza. Ethica ordine geometrico demonstrata, 1677

Genz II 312
Purpose/God/Spinoza: God does not act for purposes, because he does not lack anything.
